Sam: Well, don't look at me like that.
Dean: I'm not looking at you like anything... but I do gotta say, you look like crap.
Sam: Nice... thanks.
Sam: This has got to be a whole new low for us.
Sam: Well, I know one thing I have in common with these people.
Dean: What's that?
Sam: Both our families are cursed.
Dean: Our family’s not cursed... we just had our dark spots.
Sam: Our dark spots are pretty dark.
Dean: You’re... dark.
Max Miller: All these people kept coming with, like, casseroles. I finally had to tell them all to go away. You know, because nothing says “sorry” like a tuna casserole.
Sam: Well, I’ll tell you one thing. We’re lucky we had Dad.
Dean: I never thought I’d hear you say that.
Sam: When Max locked me in that closet, that big cabinet against the door, I moved it.
Dean: You have a little bit more upper body strength than I give you credit for.
Sam: Aren't you worried, man? Aren't you worried that I could turn into Max or something?
Dean: Nope. No way. You know why?
Sam: No, why?
Dean: Because you've got one advantage that Max didn't have.
Sam: Dad? Because Dad's not here, Dean.
Dean: No, me. As long as I'm around, nothing bad is gonna happen to you.
Dean: I know what we need to do about your premonitions. I know where we have to go.
Dean: Vegas. (Sam walks away) What? Come on, man. Craps table? We’d clean up!

Telekinesis in the Real World
Though it's never been proven that telekinesis has been used for death, as seen in this episode, telekinesis has become increasingly popular in the real world and has been tied to Psychokinesis, or "mind-movement". Many cases have proven that people have the telekinetic ability to influence the behavior of matter via mental activity.
Sam and Dean's relationship
This episode is a good example of the close relationship that has developed between Sam and Dean. Sam was only able to use his telekinesis when Dean was in trouble. Dean also shows that he cares for Sam by telling him that as long as Sam is with him, he won't let anything bad happen to him.
